Glenda D. McLeod

Upon hearing that Glenda McLeod was my ex's lawyer, I'll admit I was intimidated. I had heard that she was very scary to go up against. While she is a formidable woman, she is also fair minded, child centered, and kind. I am so thankful that she was involved in our case and was able to help us settle all outstanding issues in our custody case within a month of being brought on. Thank you, Glenda!

I want to express my heartfelt gratitude for everything you did to solve my very complicated case. It was such a long and difficult process but you were my rock throughout. Retaining you for my counsel was the best thing that happened to me. I only wish I had found you earlier. Not every lawyer could do what you did. I was completely awed by your extensive knowledge of family law, your expertise in written and spoken communications and your courtroom skills. Thank you for making what I thought was impossible, possible and with a better outcome than I could have ever dreamed. I also want to thank your whole team, especially Kelly and Kate and Emily and whoever else helped on my case. I appreciate all your efforts so much. Thank you again and I wish you all the best in the future.

Kelly – I appreciate you and Glenda for everything you have done for me. I don't deal well with these types of legal issues and you both were understanding and helpful when I struggled and didn't understand. Again, thanks for everything, very happy with the outcome.

Glenda McLeod represented me several years ago when I initiated divorce proceedings and sought sole custody of my young daughter. As a single father, I was concerned that I would have a battle to fight; although I had the full support of family and friends, I was aware of the perspective, right or wrong, that fathers may face unfair challenges, if not bias, when seeking equitable outcomes in family court. Glenda's professional demeanor, straight-forward communication, unwavering support, and extensive knowledge of family law assured me that she would pursue and achieve the best possible outcome for my child while protecting my parental rights. I was justly awarded sole custody and have raised my daughter in accordance with the court order Glenda secured on my behalf.

My daughter has truly flourished in my loving care, and I have encouraged and facilitated her relationship with her mother. I found myself in need of Glenda’s counsel for a second time, however; my ex-wife initiated proceedings to change the custody order. For the sake of brevity, I will say that our positions on what is truly best for our daughter are not only in direct conflict, but they are diametrically opposed. We have navigated each step of the family court process and we are now on the verge of commencing trial.

When I began my search for legal counsel, it was imperative that I find an attorney whose motivation would be preserving my child's best interests first and foremost, and not exacerbating or amplifying conflict between the parties involved. I wanted someone beside me who would accurately represent and reflect who I am as a person and a parent. I wanted to work with someone who would be direct and honest in our exchanges, someone who would share important information with me, and not waste my time or modest income. I wanted someone who would be effective, aggressive when necessary, and strategic when maneuvering my case through the family court system. Glenda has done all of the above with the utmost skill and integrity.

Whether you're going through a difficult divorce or trying to determine the custody/access of a shared child, family court is emotionally taxing, financially costly, and more often than not, can prevent people from focusing on their futures. Glenda has given me confidence that there is light at the end of this long tunnel, that I have someone who is compassionate, trustworthy and knowledgeable in my corner, who recognizes the enormity of the responsibility her clients place upon her. Glenda has surpassed my expectations with conviction and determination. Her genuine warmth and strength of character have made this process easier for me along the way. I have recommended Glenda's legal services to friends and family, and I will do so again and again, without reservation. My gratitude cannot be fully expressed.

We found Glenda D. McLeod and her assistant, Kelly Bolduc, very effective in helping us respond to a court case launched against us ten months ago. Initially we felt vulnerable and fearful of the outcome, including high legal costs. Glenda’s strong but persuasive performance in court and in the settlement meeting turned the case around, much to our relief. We are now looking forward to receiving the cheque that will be about four times our legal cost and pay for a trip with our children and grandchildren to Disneyworld.

“Amy was invaluable in helping me through a difficult time. I have two young children and going through a separation after 10+ years of marriage. I was dealing with a custody case assessment on one hand, and financial issues on another and the overwhelming emotions involved in thinking I would lose my children and/or the capability to take care of them. Amy walked me through the process and explained each step in detail and answered all my questions, no matter how trivial they seemed. She was quick, sharp and above all compassionate.”
“We chose Amy after our last lawyer failed. Amy took on our law suit with confidence. She has strength in details and gave an unprecedented case. When the time came for Amy and Glenda to go to Court ... We got results!” --Tony Piller
“I cannot even begin to express my heart-felt thanks to Amy. She took the time to really understand my family law issue. She acted on my behalf with compassion, understanding, knowledge and above all she delivered results that exceeded my expectations!” -- Peter Csaszar
“Up until a year ago I had never even seen the inside of a courtroom or stepped into a lawyer’s office...but I am now very familiar with both...and retaining Amy was the best thing I ever did...she made me feel at ease both in her office as well as in the courtroom... she fought hard for everything and came through for me...most importantly she got me sole custody of my 5 amazing children...for this I am most thankful” -- Sarah Harper

“When I started this process four years ago I decided I would send a thank you card to everyone who made a difference in my life. I would like to extend a sincere thank you for everything that you have done to help me and the kids. I never had to worry about anything as you always had my best interests in mind. Your calmness and professionalism in a time of chaos for me was greatly appreciated. Thank you from the bottom of my heart."
